A Moment of Love

What is the hurry?
Where is the rush?
Might your self-imposed
perception
of time suggest
there is not enough –
in a finite, linear world,
time feels as precious
as gold,
but can you live in
each precious moment,
to see the miracles
unfold?

What might you miss,
looking ahead,
looking back,
not be-ing totally
here,
might you miss
savoring a taste
of summer’s fruit,
blackberries that grow
so very near,
might you miss
when first birdsong begins,
or when wood thrush
sings its last note,
throughout this day,
can you tune in –
savoring how a moment
unfolds?

Returning to now,
returns you to You –
as you go within
are you not there,
when you feel lost
or stretched too thin,
can you not find You
anywhere?
Pull up this moment,
see yourself,
in this Reflection of Love –
and in return,
are you not shining,
in this beautiful
Moment of Love?

Pick any minute,
to find this moment,
it is a gift for you
anytime.
Behold this gift
and brightly shine
this loving Moment
of Love.

A Loving Connection

Connected.

As constant as
the shining sun,
rays shining down
on everyone,
it matters not
where you come from,
are All not
connected?

Does Light not find
a way
to filter through
a cloudy sky
or night-time, too,
can not sun’s Light
light up the moon,
no matter the phase,
does it not flow
through you,
the sun,
the moon,
the stars
and You –
are All not
connected?

Is not your Light within
what connects you to
anything you see,
any experience you
do,
if you fee disconnect,
can you tune into You
and find common ground
in the Light you sense
around you?

You can connect with
another,
or beloved pet,
or the flowers that bloom,
the birds feeding their
young,
are you not a part
of that, too –
from the air that you
breathe,
to the morning sun
that breaks through,
you are connected
to All
and All connects
through you, too.

As constant as
the shining sun,
rays shining down
on All as One,
does not the Light
of Love abound,
are you not All
and All Is You,
connected in Love,
in Light,
as One –
You Are
always connected.

Leading With Love

What would you do
in this Play of Life,
if fear and doubt
left the stage,
if you gave them
lesser roles
and not the leading
part to play,
as they demand
some attention,
can you acknowledge
and respect their
role to play,
then can you lead
with Peace and Love,
allowing Strength
and Gratitude
to show the way?

What role,
what voice
is the director,
what belief,
what script
do you wish to play –
all roles have many
options,
choices to make
along the way,
beneath the many beliefs
that you have gathered,
can you find the One
that builds you up,
what believes in You
when you are doubtful,
is it not always
Love?

Let Love lead the way,
can you adjust to how
Love feels,
the ego may like chaos,
building drama
to distract your view,
there are roles for
all of the players
that vie for your
attention here,
but with Love as
your Director,
can you lead with Love
everywhere?

Love inspires.
Love includes.
Love has a place
for all of You –
Love loves you
when you are worried,
or do not know what
to do,
give Love the leading role
and experience how the
play unfolds.
With Love,
Be Peace,
Be fearless,
Be You,
Be Bold.

A Loving Gift

From the human perspective,
there may be things
that you think
“should” happen,
or want them
to be,
but can you not
experience ease
and Grace,
even when lIfe
is not easy?

Yes, you may wish
to change the world,
reduce the friction,
have all agree,
but is there not learning
in relationship,
even if the experience
brings out difficulties?

When something rocks
you to your core,
is this not where
your Truth resides –
at your core,
can you not sense
what is important,
and stripped of layers
does Love not rise –
you are surrounded
by Love,
it runs through you,
it is Who You Are –
tap into your magnificence,
the Shining You
is neither near
or far.

One part of you
may sense a veil,
as you try to open
up your eyes,
but the You
that is All-seeing
wishes to share
this delightful Prize –
this gift that you
may seek
is already wrapped up
with a bow,
and You Are That,
Eternally Love –
trust,
believe
and with Love,
Know.

Welcome You,
welcome Home,
be that wherever
you think
is here or there.
Here Is Home.
Home Is Here,
and Love Is
Everywhere.

Dance of Life

There is a rhythm
in life,
know when to push,
when to be still,
there is movement,
there is quiet,
interactions that may
test your will,
life is a dance,
you learn the steps,
you create anew,
you change the tune,
and do you not learn
with every move
across the room?

Some moves are choreographed,
others are impromptu,
you may have many
different partners,
you may dance a solo, too,
what is the music that
you follow,
to feel the rhythm
in your soul,
what moves you to
take a chance,
what can lead you
to let go?

Listen to your inner music
that plays a song
that sets you free,
some tunes make
you feel like dancing,
sometimes still is what
you wish to Be,
your rhythm may some days
beat loudly,
some days you only need
to sense the pulse,
but your soul is always
leading,
with the song you need
to hear the most.

Let Love lead your dance,
even as you know
the dance may change,
you are partners in
this life,
but through Eternity
you dance again,
do not be afraid to learn
a new move
or try a different song,
the rhythm is always Love,
the beat is where your
soul belongs.

Let your heart
beat the rhythm
of your Dance with
Life,
full of Grace,
You Are beautiful,
You Are Love and
You Are Light.

You Are . . .

You want an answer
to a question,
but what if an answer
doesn’t come,
maybe the question
you are asking
is to be answered in a
different form,
might questions come from
expectation,
might the answer
that you seek,
be one that is open
to possibility,
one that lights up
for you to see?

Can you move beyond
answers
that are a result
of the human mind,
analyzing,
problem solving,
wanting puzzle pieces
to fall in line,
some pieces of the puzzle
are to encourage you
to learn –
and when the puzzle is
finally solved,
are you not ready for more
to discern?

The process of earth living
has rules and hoops
you do jump through,
but is not the driving force
behind this wonder –
is it not the Love that
shines in You?

Let your humanness
bring up,
what you wish to experience
or to feel,
once it bubbles to
the surface,
might you see Love
begin to heal
any fears,
any doubts
that you are limiting
yourself to –
Love is Everlasting,
You Are the answer,
You Are Love
and Love Is You.

Winds of Love

Imagine a ride
in a hot air balloon,
(and for some you
need not imagine,
for you have experienced
this, too) –
you may feel that
you are floating,
not moving much
at all,
but does not the
scenery change,
do you not rise up
above it all?

When you are moving
with the air,
a part of the
atmosphere,
you are still You,
but does not the
world,
look much different
from your perspective
here?

Yes, it may be hard
not to look down,
to compare here
from there,
but can you Be
in the present,
as you float
up in the air –
as you feel the current,
One with the Flow,
can you not take a break
from the world,
are you not You,
minus the story,
feeling the sun,
enjoying the view?

Take a breath,
take a break,
and when you need to
unwind,
you can always get
into the basket,
letting this balloon
begin to climb,
yes, you are part
of the earth,
with its responsibilities
and strife,
but you also
can take flight,
do you not exist
truly Everywhere?

When you are moving
or in the stillness,
your soul continues
to grow,
and Love always
is surrounding you,
always more than
you know.
Settle in,
enjoy the ride,
know you are moving
right along.
Soak it up,
flow with it now –
you are riding
the Winds of Love.
